Circumcision

Circumcision at Winfield Hospital

What is Circumcision?

Male circumcision is the permanent removal of the foreskin, a retractable fold of skin that covers and protects the tip of the penis. Being circumcised or uncircumcised may be a religious or custom choice. It is also performed for medical reasons when less invasive treatments haven’t worked.

Common medical reasons for circumcision include:

• Phimosis – the foreskin is too tight to pull over the penis head and can cause pain when the penis is erect or passing urine.
• Paraphimosis – the foreskin won’t return to its original position after being pulled back and can cause the penis to be painful and swollen.
• Recurrent balanitis – skin irritation of penis head.
• Balanitis xerotica obliterans (BXO) – skin disease affecting the penis may cause phimosis, inflammation and scarring of the penis head.
• Penile cancer – rare type of cancer.

Here at Ramsay Health Care, our skilled and experienced surgeons regularly perform male circumcisions.
